Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Getafe

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's La Liga clash with Getafe.

Barcelona will be eager to make it back-to-back La Liga wins for the first time this season when they travel to Getafe this weekend.

The Spanish champions have endured a difficult start to the 2019-20 campaign, although a 2-1 home victory over Villarreal on Tuesday night eased some of the pressure on head coach Ernesto Valverde.

The Catalan giants will now be looking to win away from home for the first time this term when they make the trip to the Spanish capital.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barca's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the meeting with Getafe.

Possible return date: Unknown

Barca will once again be without Jordi Alba after the left-back picked up a hamstring problem during the recent Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund. The Spanish champions are yet to signal when the experienced defender will be available for first-team selection once again.

Samuel Umtiti

Samuel Umtiti is out until the end of October with a foot injury. The 25-year-old, who is yet to represent Barca this season, picked up the issue while training with France during the recent international break.

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi has not yet technically been ruled out of this weekend's match by Barca despite picking up an adductor problem during the first half of Tuesday's clash with Villarreal. However, AS claims that the Argentina international will miss his team's next three matches recovering from the issue.


Barcelona have no players suspended for the clash with Getafe this weekend.
